Family Weekend

September 23-25 Join Us!

This is a time for you and your family to come and enjoy all the beauty of Saint Joseph’s College with your student in the wonderful fall season. Your student has been on campus for just over five weeks and so much has taken place, from their first classes of the semester to enjoying the 90 degree weather down at the lake. No matter how your student has been involved, they have started to truly feel the meaning of “community” here at Saint Joseph’s.

We hope that you can enjoy some or all of the programs we have planned for you, your family and student. That majority of our events and athletic contests are on Saturday, but please feel free to join us any time during the weekend. We will have a “Help Tent” for families located outside of Alfond Center at 11am on Saturday morning, with schedules and staff to help answer any questions you might have about the weekend events. The majority of the Family Weekend attractions will be located in the interior of campus on the Mercy Lawn.

Thank you for being a part of this memorable weekend.
